Ruvin's statement was recorded by Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine in the Unified Register of pre-trial investigations March 10. Main Military Prosecutor's Office investigator of major crimes Petryshyn informed about this in an official letter."It's an offence against the state. Joint Staff General Nazarov threatens to dismiss Ukrainian armed forces officers to conceal his guilt in the IL-76 downing," Censor.NET Chief Editor Yurii Butusov wrote in his article.
We are talking about intimidation of Colonel V. Lukianchuk, Colonel A. Pakholchenko, and Lieutenant Colonel Oleksandr Serhienko by Nazarov's lawyers, who invited the officers to take part in the meeting.
Reportedly, Nazarov will be charged with another crime under Art. 386 - obstructing the work of forensic experts.
It should be reminded that 40 Marines from the 25th Brigade and nine IL-76 crew members from Melitopol were killed as a result of the attack on the aircraft. Major General Nazarov is a suspect in IL-76 military transport aircraft crash at the airport in Luhansk June 14. He was officially brought charges by the Chief Military Prosecutor's Office, which required taking the General in custody. But the court left Nazarov at large.
